Videos about the WIDA Standards

Great resources from the Virginia DOE on the WIDA ELP Standards.  From http://www.doe.virginia.gov/instruction/esl/standards_resources/#I tried to embed the videos as in the post, but the links are posted through a different player software.  They’re definitely worth it though.

WIDA ELP Standards Instructional Videos

Virginia educators demonstrate activities for teaching the WIDA ELP standards. The Model Performance Indicators (MPIs) selected for these videos, though not comprehensive, represent key language functions repeated throughout the WIDA ELP Standards. These videos link to Flash files which require the Adobe Flash Player plug-in. Download the free player.
